Lord Skywave
(This Is Music Ltd.)


Twenty first century pop can be all over the map and no where is this more apparent then on the self-titled 2008 CD from England’s Lord Skywave. Basically the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Simon Lord, the Lord Skywave CD is an auspicious debut containing some wildly diverging musical styles. Any musician who cites Robert Wyatt, Moondog, McDonald & Giles and Sly Stone as influences and actually delivers the goods is worth a listen. One of the the CD’s instrumentals “Dialogues,” sounds like a modern Penguin Cafe Orchestra with a trio for oboe, bassoon and piano and is beyond brilliant. Apparently, Lord’s grandmother Madeleine Dring is another influence that finds it’s way onto the CD. Other cuts feature guest vocalists and blend McCartney-esque electro eclectica while that sonic hip-hop beat is never completely buried in the mix. www.SimonWLord.com
